Transfer credit programs
Several BC post-secondary institutions offer first-year engineering transfer programs. Many of these programs transfer seamlessly into second year of the BEng and BSEng programs at UVic. Students that complete of one of these programs, with an overall standing of 67%, can be considered for admission to second year on an equal footing with 1st year students in the Faculty of Engineering. Should the demand exceed the spaces available, admission to the second year of these degree programs will be based on academic performance in the first year of studies. Application deadline – April 30th. Documentation deadline – May 31st for September entry.

Turn your Engineering Technology diploma into an Engineering degree with Camosun College's Engineering Bridge programs. This six-month academic program allows graduates of Engineering Technology Diploma programs to fast-track directly into third year engineering studies at UVic.
The Engineering Bridge program takes six months to complete. You'll attend classes at Camosun's Interurban campus, then continue your studies at UVic. After two more years, including work terms, you'll be graduating with an engineering degree and ready to make a difference in the world.
Spaces in all Bridge programs are limited and early applications are encouraged. Application forms are available from Camosun College and due Feb 15 every year for entry into the program starting the following June. Visit Camosun's Engineering Bridge site for more information.
